  3. To prevent diseases that can be passed not only from animal to animal but also from animal to human.
  4. To protect pets from diseases from wildlife such as rabies, distemper, Leptospirosis, Lyme, & influenza
  5. County & state laws require certain vaccinations for pets, But also Boarding & Grooming facilities, training classes, dog parks, Housing facilities, traveling etc.

cat friendly practiceWright Animal Hospital has been approved by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) as a Cat Friendly Practice – Silver Status!

According to the AAFP, even though there are millions more pet cats than there are pet dogs in the United States, cats visit the veterinarian much less frequently. This is largely because of the stress that comes with vet visits for cats and their owners.

At Wright Animal Hospital, we strive to make your visit to the doctor with your feline companion as stress-free as possible. We offer a full range of preventive care services to keep your cat living a longer, happier life – as well as a feline-only waiting area and a feline-exclusive exam room!

We are committed to your cat's health. Call us at (847) 299-0135 if you have questions about the AAFP's Cat Friendly Practice Program or the services we provide our feline patients.

Our team of veterinary professionals is dedicated to delivering the best customer service and compassionate care to you and your pets.
